At M&G Investments, we are responsible for our clients' assets. Here you will find more detail about our approach to responsible investment and our policies and principles.

Responsible Investment

We take our responsibilities as an investor seriously. Investment teams share an acute awareness of their duties as stewards of our clients’ assets, and this perspective informs all investment decisions.

We believe that the long-term success of companies is supported by effective investor stewardship and high standards of corporate governance, while social and environmental issues can also have an important impact on a company’s performance and successful development.

M&G Real Estate looks to manage and respond to the growing range of environmental and social issues that can impact property values, helping protect and enhance fund and asset performance.

M&G Real Estate will endeavour to ensure that our policies actively promote environmental protection, and wherever possible enhancement, within the confines of fiduciary duties to clients.

We use all reasonable endeavours to identify conflicts, manage them effectively and treat our clients fairly. This is central to the duty of care we owe to clients.

Stewardship

The UK Stewardship Code was first introduced in 2010, setting the benchmark in the UK for institutional investors to meet ownership responsibilities in respect of their holdings of UK equities. The Code was updated in 2019 to reflect the fact that the investment market has changed considerably since the publication of the first Code in 2010. The new Code came into force on 1 January 2020, and M&G was among the first tranche of recognised signatories. Signatories are re-evaluated on an annual basis by the UK’s Financial Reporting Council.

M&G Investments’ Annual Stewardship Report explains how we adhere to the UK Stewardship Code 2021, and highlights our engagement, voting and other responsible investment activities from throughout 2021.
The Japan Stewardship Code was first introduced in 2014, with a revised version published in 2020. M&G Investments supports the Code, which is designed to promote the sustainable growth of Japanese companies through investment and engagement.

An active and informed voting policy is an integral part of our investment philosophy. By voting, we seek to add value to our clients and protect our interests as shareholders.

A company’s remuneration policy should be well governed, transparent and aligned with the interests of shareholders. Engagement on remuneration is part of our regular and purposeful dialogue with investee companies.

M&G believes that the long-term success of companies is supported by effective investor stewardship, high standards of corporate governance and transparent engagement policies. We believe that if a company is run well, and sustainably, it is more likely to be successful in the long run. We undertake all investment stewardship engagements and proxy voting with the goal of protecting and enhancing the long-term value of client’s assets. Our engagement activities form an integral part of how we integrate ESG considerations in our investment process.

Reports

United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Initiative is an international network of investors working together to put the six Principles for Responsible Investment into practice. The PRI publishes an annual assessment report of individual signatories, which evaluates investors’ progress in implementing and articulating their Responsible Investment activities. For the 2019 report, we are pleased to have maintained our A+ rating for Strategy & Governance, which measures M&G Investments overall Responsible Investment approach.
